Donnie Bacon just might have pulled one for the record books out of Green Valley Lake last week, except there was no official weigh-in made; but it did make dinner for several of Bacon’s friends.

Donnie Bacon is a frequent visitor to the Green Valley Park lakes where he’s had luck landing some of the modest-sized trout stocked each month by the Arizona Game and Fish Department. But his catch on March 1 near the dock and boat ramp on the 10-acre main lake was a lunker-sized trout that would have gone down in the GVP record books had it been officially weighed. The fish — a trophy-sized catch in most any Arizona river or lake, let alone an urban park — tipped the scales unofficially at a robust 6 lbs., 8 oz.
